    Concur. From what I've read the production of 71 models was scheduled to start the first week of August 1970. If we knew the sequence number it would help. They start with 100001 across the whole Chrysler line, not models.

    Don't forget, during those years the production was artificially pumped high and the Sales Banks were humongous, their plants had long summer shutdowns.

    So you concur then. The SPD date is 26 Aug and we were commenting that it's likely Aug 69 and not Aug 70

    There were years when production of a popular model continued on longer than normal. Maybe not this model in August of 70 but a current model year car built later than the first week of August is not automatically out f the question.

    But highly unlikely for C-bodies of that era. I remember newspapers ads where dealers were blowing out new 1971 Fury's when '73s were on the floor.

    Not in the case buddy. Not know much about other car companies and their cut off dates but In the day werent the summer's used for production change overs for all the American companies. Obviously they wanted to compete with each other. Being last with the new years model on the street isnt a good idea

    It's not like the 70s models were overly popular with consumers. It was the beginning of a long sales slide for Chrysler full sized cars that eventually went off a cliff with the oil crisis a few years later. They would have rolled out the next years models ASAP IMHO.

    I agree. I was just responding to your point that could be taken as no current model year cars were ever built in August of the current year even though you did specify 69 and 70.

    So never mind we are all in agreement on this car
